required leave-taking. The harbor had only a bulkhead, and was subject to unrelenting surge. Anchoring for 3 days worked fine. No, it was not truly relaxing, for a number of reasons, but not primarily concern over dragging.
And yes, I can see where insurance could fall short. I've never had a claim in 25 years of boating
, and intend to continue the trend.
